A blessing and dedication ceremony for Hawai‘i Island’s newest public playground will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 25, at Honoka‘a Park.

The public is invited to join Mayor Billy Kenoi, Hāmākua Councilwoman Valerie Poindexter and other dignitaries in opening the new Honoka‘a Park playground. Refreshments will be served.

Located next to the park’s gymnasium, the playground features a play area designed for children 2 to 5 years old and another for bigger keiki between the ages of 5 and 12 years old. Multiple slides, climbing rings, covered decks and a grass-like safety surface comprise the playground’s modular design.
